RAMBO™ ONLINE SLOT REVIEW
Progressive Jackpot: No
One of the most well-known characters in movie history jumps straight onto the reels in Rambo, a five-reel, 720-ways to win slot produced by iSoftBet. Featuring Sylvester Stallone as the Vietnam war hero John Rambo, it comes with a bonus feature that provides free spins with expanding symbols as well as a quartet of unpredictable progressive jackpots.
The Rambo film series focuses on the exploits of one John Rambo, a Vietnam war veteran played by Stallone. There have been four films in the series, the first three hitting the silver screen during the 1980s. While playing, you can win one of four different Jackpots, and enjoy a free spins round with an intriguing twist. However, the most prominent feature of the slot is the 720 ways to win and the somewhat different layout of the reels.
Set within a dense jungle that is lit only by the orange glow of the sun, Rambo stares from the side of the reels looking like he is ready to pounce. The metal border of the reels gives this slot a soldierly feel and the associated symbols only add to this connection.
The main options are all at the bottom of the reels with the spin button in the middle. To the left, you will see what your total bet will be, and to the right are the autoplay options which allow you to pick between five and 1,000 automatic spins. You are also given the option to pick a win and loss limit and to prompt the autoplay to stop should you hit a jackpot.
The Rambo series is one of the more popular film franchises in cinematic history, so to bring the movie’s theme onto the reels is nothing short of spectacular. The 720 ways to win and the different set up of the reels gives the game a distinct feel and this is added to by the free spins round that features the expanding symbols.
The reels in Rambo have a strong military feel. They're set up in a 3-4-5-4-3 configuration which gives 720 ways to win and feature an assortment of bullets, knives, snakes and Jeeps as well as lower value playing card symbols. The Rambo logo is the wild, replacing everything apart from the scatter and jackpot symbols.
Rambo himself is the game's scatter symbol; land 3, 4 or 5 of them anywhere on the reels for a payout of 5, 10 or 15 times your total stake. You'll also trigger the Free Spins feature and receive 5, 10 or 15 free spins. Before the feature starts, a symbol will be chosen at random. This will become an expanding symbol.
The hand grenade symbol is crucial if you want to land one of the four Jackpots. This symbol is basically a scatter and you’ll need it to appear at least five times across the reels to penetrate the Jackpot territory. The four payouts are the Stealth, Bravery, Honor and Explosive Jackpots; these paying out when you land 5, 6, 7 or 8 hand grenades respectively. The Explosive Jackpot is the most rewarding of the four.
The free spins feature is triggered when landing the “Rambo” scatter symbol three or more times. You’ll gain 5 free spins if landing the minimum 3 scatters, with 5 spins added for each additional scatter. You’ll also gain an immediate win of 5x, 10x or 15x your total stake based upon the number of scatters.
Before the free spins start, all of the standard symbols in the game will show up on a horizontal reel with the symbols rotating from right to left. When this comes to a stop, the chosen symbol will now become an expanding one on the reels during the free spins, meaning it will take up an entire reel when it appears in any spot. This can lead to a situation where the same symbol can take up much of the slot, which in combination with the wilds and the 720 ways to win can make for some massive wins. During this round, the choice of expanding symbol at the start is significant, as you’ll want the higher paying symbols to be the expanding ones.
